Disney Infinity Star Wars Rebels Figures To Be Retailer Exclusive, Initially

rebels_infinity_group

A report from Infinity Inquirer has posted that each of the four Star Wars Rebels characters (Kanan, Ezra, Sabine and Zeb) revealed recently will initially be exclusive to 4 separate retailers as part of a timed release.

Kanan (Walmart)
Ezra (Toys”R”Us)
Sabine (Target)
Zeb (GameStop)

They also go on to say that after a few weeks, they should all be available  where Disney Infinity figures are sold.

Thanks to our friends at MakingStarWars.net for the heads-up.

Black Series Awakening at Target?

Picture1

Over the weekend, forum member Jodo ran into something very few people have seen at a Target store in a long, long time… several new Black Series figures.  Not full cases, of course, since Target seems to reject the notion of giving their customers a full selection of Star Wars figures these days, but it still seems like a positive sign (I ran into some stores that also stocked last week, though it was as usual, just 2-3 figures at a time).

Keep those store reports coming in, and hopefully the last handful of figures from the final waves of pre-Episode 7 Black Series actually make it to the pegs in decent supply before the onslaught of product in September…

New TBS 6″ Continue to Hit Retail

On my way out of town prior to the Memorial Day holiday weekend, I managed to find the latest wave of 6″ Black Series figures which includes Emperor Palpatine, Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise) and Clone Trooper Captain as well as the repack of Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise). This assortment (now in multi-lingual packaging) continues trickle out through retailers like Target and Toys”R”Us so keep your eyes open.

Our friends at JediDefender have received a new list of Target DPCI numbers (and prices) for later this year courtesy of forum member “Nicklab”. The list breaks down several segments of toys from action figures (3.75″, 6″ & 12″), vehicles, roll play, Micro Machines and more. Click on through to check it out. Spoiler warnings apply.

Update: You can also check out the list at the Venganza Media Gazette if your workplace has a block on message boards/forums.

Signs of Life at Target

Reports are coming in that Target stores across the United States are starting to receive singles here and there of the second wave of Rebels figures (already in the past week, I’ve seen more of these figures than all of Wave 1 combined since they were first released).

Be on the lookout as there’s a good chance your local Target store is receiving these too – even if it’s just 1-2 figures at a time.

Hasbro Toy Talk by Jodo: Part 3

Forum member Jodo has posted another good read on his blog about the issues the Star Wars fan base is dealing with, this time focusing on the action figure price increases that appear to be looming across the hobby, and have already impacted Target (well, maybe not so much yet because retailers rarely stock anything anymore that the Star Wars market wants anyway).

Check it out here, and share your thoughts in our comments section or in the forums!
